The Gulf Breeze Zoo is set up where you can leisurely walk through at your own pace and discover all the animals, with information and descriptions posted on each exhibit. It's not a large zoo by any measure, but for the size there is lots packed in here. Its easy to navigate and get around. Good for young kids and elderly both, as there is lots of benches, picnicking tables and concessions. It would be a great place to have a pick-nick at some point.
There is a variety of exhibits, from Safari themed animals on the train ride (which you can purchase a ticket for an addition cost, only $3 - I recommend it while your there) Its nice that you can feed lots of animals, feeding the camels was entertaining and fun for me and my family. There are north american bears, and apes.. There are also "free range" chickens, roosters, and peacocks that roam around and put on there own private shows!
This reminds me, we also enjoyed going into the exotic bird exhibit, you can feed the birds and they'll land all over / around you.
I went with a large group of family and friends and we had no difficulties with parking or feeling like the place was over crowded. We got to see each exhibit leaving no part of the Zoo undiscovered.
I loved the variety of goats and found the Camels and Graffias to be the most unusual and interesting (both of which you can feed)
Admission to the zoo is modest compared with other Zoo's in the country at $15/adult $11/child but I think for the size of the park and what it has to offer I would of been more pleased paying a lower entrance fee. All the same they would most likely get more business if this admission was lowered.
At the same time parking if free! Which is a cost that you have to pay most places, so I guess it evens out a little.
There are events in the fall I have heard of and plan to return to check out.
One is called "Boo at the Zoo" and "Zoo Lights" admission is only $10 for these.
